Baby Love

We finally got to meet the newest member of our family, Grace, yesterday! She is adorably cute, and it was so nice to hold a baby again! I am happy for my sister-in-law and her husband who have this little bundle of sunshine in their lives.

She is already a Bears fan.

Here she is wearing the sleeper I bought her. Isn't it nice?
And here's the bib I knitted for her. I did it a little differently from the pattern; I made the main part of the bib all one width. I was aware it might affect how the bib laid, but I washed it and laid it out flat to dry, and I think it will work. I am going to make another one all in orange, for when Grace eats strained carrots. They stain something awful. One of those things you learn when you have a baby around. :)

Your new niece is precious! What a beautiful child. I like the bib very much. It has more "style" than most knitted bibs that I've seen.

Thank you, Karen!

Scottius, I knew you'd pick up on that Bears thing. My sis-in-law is a huuuge Bears fan.
